Chemists must study the fundamentals of physics and thermodynamics means thermal energy in motion. Physics reveals the underlying laws of thermodynamics while chemistry likely applies the principles to particular chemical reactions under study. Chemists use thermodynamics in basic research while chemical engineers apply the research (including thermodynamics) to large scale apparatus that produces end products. Hope that helps a little.

Thermodynaimcs is a simple branch which deals with the conversion of one forms of heat to anathor , 
in physics and chemistry there is a besic diffrence in the sign convention of thermodynamics , in chemistry the path in which the chemical reaction occurs are comes into picture , but in physics there are both state as well as path function is their , 
in chemistry the heat changes applies to undergo a particular reactions , while in physics its used to design some kind of instrument like carnot engine , 
thermodynamics are much more complex in chemi than in physics ,
